I always purchase AppleCare for my desktop and laptop computers. I’ve used the extended warranty with great success and saved hundreds of dollars in repairs. Apple also offers coverage for both the iPhone and iPad with AppleCare+. Device owners used to be required to add the extended warranty within 30 days of the iPhone or iPad purchase date. Apple just made some changes to their coverage and you can now wait up to 60 days from the purchase date to decide if you want the extended warranty.
